Czech made – trends in Czech glass

This exhibition at the Craft Study Centre shows the work of well-known Czech glass makers. The work that appealed to me most was that by Martin Hulbucek. He showed two large glass forms that seem to hide an image inside them. They were both vases made of mould melted glass, which had been cut and polished. In general I was disappointed with the glass on show. I have seen glass in the Czech Republic which contained many intense, vibrant colours and that was what I was expecting to see. I will go and see the exhibition again and see if my impression changes after a second visit.
